ASUS X58L Downgrade Vista to XP
#1
I am looking to downgrade my ASUS X58L to XP.
It has a SATA drive, so I have a problem with my XP CD, I have read the previous threads about downloading the SATA drivers to a floppy, but I do not have a PC with a floppy drive - how do I overcome this.
The SATA controllers shown in Device Manager are:
Intel® 82801 HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller and
Intel® ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850.
Thanks
Phil

that storage is part of the intel 965 chipsets

what you need to do is add the sata driver to a windows xp install disk.
how to do that can be found here.

sata drivers can be found here

what you need to do is make or just unpack that driver then add the sata files only ( not the whole folder ) to your disk.
